So I have a recipe hub that was taken down awhile ago after the recipe format was put out well today I changed it to the recipe format and republished it and in a got a email that it was unpublished for being substandard without any reasoning to why saying it's incomplete. It isn't incomplete in any way that I can figure out and I don't know how to get any help on the matter
Hello Misty May, The reason your recipe article was moderated for poorly structured is because the same information appears twice. Try removing the duplicate information and adding more original photos to improve the quality of you article.
Does it specifically say it's incomplete, or did you just get one of those emails giving a heap of possible reasons why it might have been unpublished?
Check to see if there's a section in the email explaining how to post a link in the appropriate section of the forums. Use the link in the email.
One possibility is simply that it's too short. Is it just a plain recipe or have you included some information about it?
If it's just a recipe on its own, the hub is probably too short. You should aim for at least 500 words, preferably more.
Write some history behind the recipe, some health information, or a deeper view of the ingredients used.
I wish they would adapt different types of hubs to different standards because it feels like writing a lot of random information about the recipe distracts and puts off readers who just want a quick recipe to make for dinner.
There is a special standard for poetry, but that's the only one.
I think the problem is that if people are looking for a quick recipe for dinner, they're going to go for one of the big recipe websites. They're always going to beat you for short recipe so there's no point trying to compete.

Wouldn't it be nice if some explanation about the hub came with the above mentioned notices. All you get is the general notice that you hub is overly promotional or substandard and it needs to be fixed. If it is re-submitted and is not fixed properly you could be banned from...

I'm new here at HUB and every one of my hubs has warnings and I've been told that I will be terminated soon because everything I post is substandard. I have read all the Terms. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong and since I'm "punished" and none of them can be viewed, I...

Hi,this Hub of mine:http://hubpages.com/hub/Haiku-poem-Coca-Colahas been flagged as substandard (or in danger of becoming one or whatever). The Hub is a poem with a video clip.

Is there a way to exclude hubbers who do not have idled hubs from the 24 hour review for new articles? This may be the wrong place to enter this request, and maybe it is an impossibility. It would be nice if staff could facilitate the process of newly written material.

I recall a thread where it was suggested HubPages use the word "non-compliant" instead of "substandard" in their email when a Hub is unpublished.I think that idea was adopted?I'd love to see the word "substandard" banished altogether from HubPages and replaced with the...
